    Hey, I was wondering if anyone knows of any way to set the phone so that, if your phone is already turned off, it will boot/startup itself at a certain time? Many thanks:)

    Well crap. Just checking.

    I figured that it would be incredibly handy for retrieval of stolen phones. I have a friend that has lost her phone twice in the past two weeks. She thinks that her ex husband has taken them, but there is no proof. She could install a gps locator + siren app like "where's my droid" but it does no good if they are just turned off.

    Thus, it seems to me that having the phone set to automatically turn on at 'whatever time' each day would be greatly beneficial for locating it. Oh well... :rolleyes:

    Thanks for the responses.
